Re: driving lessons and getting a licence in addis
I have no detailed information about how to obtain in Addis but I know how to obtain in Awassa. The general procedure will be the same but there could be some small differences in different cities. In addition, I am an Ethiopian so I am not sure how it applies to foreign nationals especially there is a written exam which is in amharic. Not sure if they provide exams in English. Here is the general procedure that I know: 1) register to local driving school. this will run up to about 2 weeks. 2) take theoretical exam. 3) Field training for 25 days. 4) take field exam.
After passing 2 and 4 you can obtain the license in less than a week. I am presuming you are asking for automobile license...for other types of licenses the training and the exam is different.
Hope some one will post with more detail about Addis.
